I got an annual passport to the Nagai Botanical Garden to see the nemophila

I have been feeling down lately, so I thought that flower therapy might be a good way to cheer myself up these days. However, it is a waste to throw away cut flowers when they are finished, and potted flowers are also difficult to take care of. I even let a cactus die, so it's too risky for them.

During my morning jog in Nagai Park, I saw nemophilas through a gap. This made me want to go into the Botanical Garden and cheer myself up with nemophilas. Normally closed on Mondays, but keep open during the fair.

No closed days during the period

When was the last time I was in the Botanical Garden? I remember the last time I was there, admission was free. At Nagai Botanical Garden, admission is free for junior high school students and younger and for Osaka citizens 65 years of age and older; otherwise, the admission fee is 200 yen.

If I recall, the last time I went to the botanical garden was with my grandmother. She loved rice and was overweight. So her doctor told her to walk 10,000 steps a day.
But still, 10,000 steps a day is too much for her, don't you think? It made her knees water and she couldn't do her sewing inside work anymore, so she ended up with dementia.

Anyway, Nagai Botanical Garden offers an annual passport for ¥1,000. In other words, if you visit more than five times a year, you can get your money's worth. So I got it on April 24th.

When I was entering the botanical garden, I saw a white man with the annual passport. Does he live nearby?
